We especially like to go directly to the bilingual, two-way, and dual immersion classrooms
where the students can sing with me in Spanish.
We also like to do evening parent/child concerts.
We're available to provide workshops for staff and parents.

Background Information about the songs
Under a grant from the California Arts Council with Arte Americas, I researched books and recordings of children's music in Spanish to try to determine the country of origin for each song. My conclusion was that most of the songs were probably brought to the American continents by the conquistadores and taught to their children. The songs have slight variations of melody and lyrics but remain the same song. They are literally our musical cultural heritage imported to the Americas. For more details about my sources of information, go to the bibliography. If you find additional sources, please send them to me so that I can add them.
